Decyl Glucoside


Available Options


Decyl Glucoside is a nonionic surfactant with good foaming properties and mild to the eyes and skin. Decyl Glucoside is obtained from 100% renewable raw materials, through a combination of plant based fatty alcohol, decanol which is derived from coconut and glucose (corn starch). Decyl Glucoside is a mild, and gentle, surfactant because it does not dry the skin out.
